SOUTH DAKOTA Ground-Water Quality Ground water provides 77 Mgal/d (million gallons per day) for about 77 percent of South Dakota's population ofpeople (fig. The majority of the State's community wells, noncommun- ity wells, private wells are located near the more populated areas of South Dakota.

As a result, you should not use surface water from the area shown on the map for drinking, cooking, bathing, or irrigation. selenium in human and animal diets can cause severe toxic effects. Most of western South Dakota is composed of sedimentary marine shales that were developed when an Selenium in South Dakota ground and surface water book sea covered South Dakota (see map here- *.pdf format).

Selenium is often associated with marine shales and therefore South Dakota has areas of high selenium concentration in. are considerably smaller than those measured in the western San Joaquin Valley, Calif., and soils from other areas in the western United States. Water-extractable concentrations of arsenic and selenium, determined on soil to water extractions, generally were Cited by: 4.

In South Dakota, we refer to these permits as Surface Selenium in South Dakota ground and surface water book Discharge permits. The state issues Surface Water Discharge permits to any point source that is discharging wastewater to waters of the state. The permits contain effluent limits that will protect the beneficial uses of our surface waters.

Many groundwater supplies in seleniferous areas of the country such as South Dakota, Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, Wyoming, and south- ern California contain selenium levels considerably above the Federal limit.

An effective removal technology is required if these drinking water supplies. Selenium concentrations in beef muscle seems contingent on the selenium concentration of the feedstuffs consumed; beef allowed to graze North Dakota rangelands high in selenium appear to have a higher amount of selenium in the muscle that beef grazing areas lower in available selenium.

Limited data are available that fully describe the amount and form of selenium that are present in forages.

Summary Problems associated with Se toxicities have been reported since for many areas of the western USA. Most of the occurrences of Se toxicity in the western states are associated with know. Selenium was identified in the s as the cause of embryo mortality and severe embryo deformities when chickens were fed grains grown on seleniferous soils in South Dakota.

The discovery of selenium poisoning by pasture plants in South Dakota, the absorption of selenium by specially adapted plants and the conversion to an available state of a part of the soil selenium by "converter plants.". Surface water is generally considered to be that which forms from "falling rains and melting snows" and which then flows over the ground surface until reaching some "well-defined channel." (1) Every South Dakota municipality is granted broad authority to implement a drainage system and issue regulations relating thereto.

ABSTRACT Selenium is a contaminant found in trace quantities in some ground- and surface- waters in the United States. Currently, the National Drinking Water Regulations limit total selenium to mg/1.

In a seleniferous area of South Dakota, Smith and Westfall () could not detect any selenium in drinking water from 34 of 44 wells; the other 10 wells contained 50 to µg selenium/liter. Beath has reported a few instances where appreciable amounts of selenium occur in springs and wells in seleniferous areas.

The selenium concentration of most surface soils lies between and ppm, even in some that support growth of toxic plants. Toxic seleniferous soils are usually alkaline and occur in regions of low rainfall in extensive areas of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah.

Nine stream sites in the Blackfoot River watershed in southeastern Idaho were sampled in September for water, surficial sediment, aquatic plants, aquatic invertebrates, and fish.

Selenium was measured in these aquatic ecosystem components, and a hazard assessment was performed on the data. Water quality characteristics such as pH, hardness, and specific conductance were relatively Cited by: Selenium content of soils is determined by slight modifications in: (i) formations or rock outcrops, (ii) formations lying beneath soil mantle, (iii) decomposition of parent rocks by wind and water force and subsequent transport by ground or surface water, (iv) Se indicator plants, and (v) man-made enrichment of the soil with Se in mining and Cited by: 2.

The con- centration of selenium in the xylem sap ranged from pg Se/ml. A frac- tionation of selenium in the leaves showed that % of the selenium was water soluble, and 10% of the total was selenite.

To assess the impact of groundwater on surface water quality and potential loss of selenium, arsenic and nitrogen in the surface system of the catchment we also conducted broad surveys of surface water quality particularly focused on assessing water quality at San Diego Creek at Campus Drive.

In a seleniferous area of South Dakota, Smith and Westfall () could not detect any selenium in drinking water from 34 of 44 wells; the other 10 wells contained 50 to ,ug selenium/liter.

Beath has reported a few instances where appreciable amounts of selenium occur in springs and wells in seleniferous areas. A U.S. Department of the Interior study started in examined the source, movement, fate, and possible biological effects of selenium associated with irrigation drainage from the Sun River Irrigation Project in west-central Montana.

Concentrations of total selenium in soil samples ranged from to micrograms per gram; the maximum concentrations were measured in nonirrigated areas. B Angostura Reclamation Unit, South Dakota Greene and others, — centrations in ground water, in surface water used for irriga-tion, and in sediment were not used for this analysis.

For simplicity, data for flowing and impounded bodies of water to irrigation-induced selenium contamination, limited finan. Ground- and surface-water samples were collected in order to characterize the local ground-water flow system, determine metal concentrations in local ground water, and understand factors controlling the discharge of metal-rich waters from the mine.

A new study shows high salt levels, metals and even radioactive material have lingered for months and even years in the water and soil near four oil-and-gas wastewater spills in North Dakota.
